Cannes 2009: We chat to the Phillip Morris guys

On Tuesday we saw I Love You Phillip Morris. On Wednesday we interviewed the writer/directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa with inserts from star Jim Carrey. On Thursday we posted it.

The film – in which Carrey plays Steven Russell, a conman who falls in love with Ewan McGregor in prison – went down a treat here, but you’ll need a bit of info to understand what Glenn and John are nattering about.

Essentially, it’s based on a true story and – SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT – Carrey’s character currently resides in a high-security prison in Texas.

Hence us asking the guys about access to him. Hope that clears it up for you. Click below to see that, and some classic Carrey film promotion / stand-up.
